- 1 -2 garlic clove
- 4 tablespoons parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄4 teaspoon white pepper
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons italian seasoning
- 4 whole roasted red peppers, canned
- salt and pepper
- Cook the fettuccine in salted water as per package directions.
- Place sauce ingredients in the Vita-Mix container in order specified except for Italian seasoning.
- Add 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning blend and secure 2-part lid.
- Select VARIABLE speed #1 and gradually increase spped to #10; then to HIGH.
- Allow the machine to run for 3 to 4 minutes or until heavy steam pours through the lid opening.
- Adjust salt and pepper to suit personal taste.
- Serve over freshly cooked fettucine, sprinkle with additional parmesan cheese if desired.

Delicious! I forgot to add the tofu so I assume the flavor was supposed to be milder, but frankly we loved it that way. I did add a little siracha for heat. I'll try to remember the tofu next time! This was easy to make and while the flavors are mild there's enough there to make it interesting. And I really like getting the bell pepper haters to eat some nutrient-packed peppers and love them!
I served this last night for dinner with chicken. I didn't use the tofu since my family doesn't care for it. This was really good. I made it Zaar World Tour 05
